Amazon has specific throttling limits. This is how they explain it in their documentation:

  • Request quota: The number of requests that you can submit at one time without throttling. The request quota decreases with each request you submit, and increases at the restore rate. Requests are calculated for each Amazon seller account and Amazon MWS developer account pair.
  • Restore rate (also called the recovery rate): The rate at which your request quota increases over time, up to the maximum request quota.
  • Maximum request quota (also called the burst rate): The maximum size that the request quota can reach.
  • Hourly request quota: The maximum number of requests you can submit per hour.

If you want to know more, we recommend reading their help article on throttling.
